Born Again


you could have done it more quietly
but your new found perspective requires
you to be adamant

– sinking into
someone else’s sheets, almost drowning
in prayer – knees trembling, my god am I salivating

Father, let me grieve  Mother,
Allow me to love

testify that I am clean, arrange the letters
to form an anagram, the amalgamation
of virtues I need to exemplify:

breastfeeding tips,
napkin folding,

how to pack the best picnic basket,
how to perfectly ball a melon,

writing the recipe book – an heirloom
for the seventh generation,

ascension, welcome
to the jurisdiction again.
